Destructoid writes: "After Richard Garriott returned from outer space, he quit his job at NCSoft. In a letter addressed to the Tabula Rasa community, Garriott expressed that his 'unforgettable experience' in space gave him the fuel to pursue new interests. One of those interests is apparently a medieval fantasy game. Surprise!
Garriott expressed this new and unanticipated desire with Wired:
'After 25 years at Origin, the last thing I wanted to make was yet another medieval fantasy game. Now, after a very interesting break, I'm keen to get back into the fray and work on a new game. Probably medieval fantasy and probably online; there's something very powerful about getting people together.'
His plans seem a bit tentative, but we're guessing that Richard Garriott can do whatever Richard Garriott wants. He's like King Midas ... minus that whole Tabula Rasa thing. Let's hope that another trip to outer space doesn't detour Garriott's new vision."
